  1. windshield wipers you wouldn’t be able to drive your car from most of the year. If you lived in Spain on the other hand you would get by most of the time. So, if the primary aim is to remove water are there any other functions that the windshield wiper performs? goto the good service.nnnn

    General motors is a big name, how come they let this happen, such kind of mistake can take several lives, it doesn’t matter they will fix the problem for free, what if this malfunction become the reason of some serious accidents.
